Because Winter Promise Quest for the Ancient World takes more of a regional approach to ancient history (rather than chronological), it was necessary for me to re-work a few things in order to include The Story of the World, Volume 1 (SOTW1).

    Hi Kristan, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your awesome blog. I don't remember how I first came to it, but I have been coming back every now and again ever since and have learned about a number of great resources from you that have really enriched my homeschooling and life in general. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for the comment Maria! I'm glad you've found some useful resources here. :-)

    Sorry, I meant "Kristine!"

    This amazing and exactly what I have been looking for!! Thank you for sharing it!! :-)

    I just stumbled upon your blog and found this listing for combining WP and MOH/SOTW. I'm planning on doing Ancient World History - I have all the curriculum you mentioned plus I have Beautiful Feet's Ancient World for junior high. I was hoping to combine but didn't know quite how to pull it together. Thanks for your list - it will help me a great deal!

    Hi again, Kristine. I was just wondering if the edition of SOTW that you own uses the terms BCE and ACE like the audiobook version I just bought. I'm sort of miffed!
    Mary Leonard said...
    This is great, thank you! I'd ordered SOTW and accidentally left Volume 1 of MOH in my shopping cart. It was a large curriculum order so that one item was missed in my scan before clicking buy! This post is helping me to use material I thought I might not use. Good thing we'd not gotten too far into the SOTW so we're easily able to back-track a little and add in MOH...and we're adding in notebooking which is also new. Wish us luck!!

    Were you able to do this for the other volumes as well or can you at least tell me your process? Did you mainly go by dates? Or did you go by part of world with dates?
    Kristine said...
    Mary - I didn't do this for the other volumes, but it's fairly easy to match things up, it just takes a bit of time. It's been years since I did this so I can't outline my exact process anymore, but I do know that I was going by part of the world with dates. Best of luck to you!
